The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued corrections for its Walking-Working Surfaces, Personal Protective Equipment and Special Industries standards to remove “typographical, formatting and clerical errors,” as announced in a final rule published in the Federal Register.

In its Personal Fall Protection Systems Standard (1910.140), OSHA changed the requirement gate strength proof testing of snaphooks and carabiners in order to remain consistent with the ANSI/ASSE Z359.12-2009 standard. Several other corrections were also made and can be read in the final rule posting. The corrections took effect December 17, 2019.
